Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This collection of the popular Transmetropolitan series follows the adventures of famous renegade journalist Spider Jerusalem. He spends his time in the future dystopia The City avoiding hit men and dealing with government corruption, media infiltration and conspiracy paranoia. In this installment, Jerusalem and his assistants are racing against government assassins to find the last living transient sex worker who serviced America's president and expose the government's web of crime and corruption. Against the post-apocalyptic urban landscape of a federal disaster zone, Jerusalem, who's a cross between Hunter S. Thompson and Bladerunner, is also fighting early onset dementia from a brain infection. Writer Ellis pulls out all the stops to offend, including Nazi sex midgets, and the main character crosses every possible journalistic ethic to get his story. A dark palette and heavy use of black suits the bleak, violent story line; thematic details bind the story together, such as the curlicues of smoke that follow Jerusalem's chain-smoking editor from panel to panel. The artwork helps shore up the weak plot, especially in later pages, with almost hidden background textual details. Labels and message T-shirts provide humor (e.g., one woman's shirt reads "sex object"; a taxi door implores "don't shoot"), along with self-referential graffiti, hotel signs and documents that refer to filmmakers past and present. While this collection doesn't live up to the series' earlier anthologies, the smug lead character and tongue-in-cheek details (reminiscent of MAD Magazine) will please longtime fans. The collection also includes original series covers by Moebius and Glenn Fabry.

Format: Paperback
After taking us n the ride of our life, Warren Ellis is finishing of with a tone non can ignore.
IN the last attempt to find the truth and expose "the smiler" Spider Jerusalem is doing what he does best, recovering the truth no matter what may be the consequences.
The comic reads like a hurricane, jumping from scene to scene and bringing the chaos that rose with the election of "the smiler".
Spider Jerusalem is fighting against time, against his decaying brain and against forces that hold almost all of the cards.
Holding to the truth, his fists, his bowl disrupter and the chair leg of truth Spider is giving the fight of his life.
A marvellous ending to a brilliant work of literature and art

Spider's has had all his work undone, and now he has to start from scratch. This time however he is not treading lightly, and anyone who doesn't cooperate is going to meet the Chair Leg of Truth. The story is heating up and is such a great example of politicians vs journalists. Spider is taking the fight head on, which is getting harder for him as his mental state is slowly falling apart. One more trade to go and Spider has thrown a hay-maker at the president.

HASH(0xa52415c4) out of 5 stars This should be required reading April 16 2013
By Rebel Brown - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a review for the series as a whole not the individual volume. I have heard about Transmetropolitan for years and a few months ago I finally started reading it. Wow, just wow. Even though the last issue came out over 10 years ago it's a story that still remains relevant today (unfortunately, read it and you'll get what I mean). All in all the characters, the main arc of the story, and the relationships are just amazing. As for the main character, make no mistake Spider Jerusalem is not a good person, but he does have principles. The Truth, no matter what. Why are you still reading this. Read the first volume, if you aren't hooked I don't know what to tell you. All I can say is I'm glad I bought all 10 and wish I had done it sooner.

HASH(0xa52665c4) out of 5 stars Best Series Ever! April 18 2006
By Leondro F. Brady - Published on
Format: Paperback
This series, for those of you who don't know, is very radical, creative, amusing, astonishing, bewildering and just plain exiting. Spider Jerusalem, the main character, is based on Hunter S. Thompson (who, if you don't already know of, you should do some reading about, or just think back to Johnny Depp's performance in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas").

Spider is a journalist (just like the real, and late, Hunter S. Thompson) who has a real problem with the way his city is being run. The series starts with a very hairy Spider who had just been living in the mountains for five years just to escape the city and "The Beast" who runs it.

The city is very futuristic, but is very much like the world we live in (if advertising strategies, body modifications and the availability of pornography and weaponary were multiplied by 10).

This is my favorite graphic novel of any I've ever read, and recomend it to every person on the planet (well, anyone who has a brain). I'd give this book 12 stars if I could, but my options are limited by Amazon here.

If you like graphic novels, Hunter S. Thomson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, rebellion, jounalism, body modification, futuristic technology concepts, sex, drugs, violence, humor, or just one of thee above, start yourself off by getting Volume 1: "Back on the Street" which is the first 3 comics in one paperback. I promise you won't regret it.

One of the greatest adult comics ever written. If you haven't read this series your missing out. Warren elise and derick Robertson hit one out of the park. A must read for any fan of dystopian scifi.
HASH(0xa5ba47d0) out of 5 stars The sickness is spreading March 28 2012
By Sam Quixote - Published on
Format: Paperback
Spider's brain disease (kind of like Alzheimer's) continues to kill him, the effects this time around are becoming more noticeable as he struggles to write his exposes. Meanwhile he and his filthy assistants are hot on the trail of Callahan's potentially Presidential-term ending exploits in his campaign and hunt down the last living witness to his depravities.

It was cool to see Mitchell Royce, Spider's former editor at "The Word", get more of a look in in this, the penultimate book in the series, which gave him more depth as a character and gave Spider one more piece of the puzzle to bring down the Smiler.

That said, there's a lot of exposition to get through before the final book in the series. Necessary perhaps given the complicated sequence of events that's needed to relate before shutting down President Callahan for good, but still a bit of a trial to get through (I'm thinking of Fred Christ's scene in particular).

Still, definitely worth reading and of course essential if you've made it this far in the series. Not the best of the bunch but Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson not on 100% is still head and shoulders above the average comics writer/artist. Here's looking forward to an explosive finale in "One More Time". Shall we?

Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan: One More Time (Vertigo, 2004)

There are times when One More Time just feels like it's tying up loose ends. There are times when One More Time is far less subtle than any of the volumes of Transmetropolitan that preceded it. And you know what? Neither of those things mattered to me, and that is about the highest praise I can give this final volume of Warren Ellis' watershed comic series. Ellis has created something of true brilliance with the series, something that manages to be socially conscious and hard-hitting while simultaneously being one of the funniest graphic novels ever to come down the pike, with phenomenal characters and very, very smart writing. If you've never experienced Transmetropolitan, do yourself a favor and pick up the first two books. It's fantastic. ****
